Whether you’ve just moved into a new den or are ekeing out some more time in your current residence, midsummer has been and gone and we’re desperate for a homeware refresh. 

The summer comes in hand in hand with car boots. We particularly like hunting out old childhood books that can be stacked in two’s or three’s for an extra charming room accent. Pop a conversational decor piece on top for an instant room update.

Get to grips with a little DIY. We’ve been spending the weekend painting wooden frames white and tarnishing them with some sandpaper for that worn-in, beachy driftwood aesthetic. Finish the refresh by scattering large smooth pebbles and tealights in glass bowls.

Update sofas, daybeds and your bedroom with scatter cushions. One of our favourite crafty bloggers Skye has written a great post about creating your own cushions for a unique and bespoke addition to any home.

Lastly, add a fresh bunch of palest blush pink peonies in a glass jug-as-vase on your windowsill. Perfect for getting back in tune with our inner Blair Waldorf and adding a feminine flourish to a room.
